The state of Texas is never short on talent, and it appears there will be an
especially heavy concentration of players from Houston in the Class of 2015.
Here is a look at three players who stood out at the Nike Camp in Dallas on
Sunday who should be national recruits in the Class of 2015.
Duvonta Lampkin (6'4/291) of Cypress Falls High School in Houston, Texas played
behind and along side 2013 Cal signee Jacobi Hunter. This will be Lampkin's year
to shine on the defensive line. His size and frame jumps out right away, but
he's more than just a player who looks like Tarzan. Lampkin showed good burst
off the ball at the Nike Camp and displayed a mean streak of a player ready to
Toby Weathersby of Westfield High School is a lean 6'4.5 and 277 pounds. Like Lampkin, Weathersby is
light on experience but heavy on ability. Weathersby was first in line at right
tackle for the one on ones and more than held his own against the opponents who
were generally a year older than him. He has good flexibility, quick feet, and
has ample room to grow to a 300 pound tackle while still gaining athletic
ability as he matures.
Jordan Davis (6'4/240) of Clear Lake High School is more of a known commodity
having already made a commitment to Florida State. Davis immediately draws the
attention of Scouts' eyes because of his size as he ran routes with the wide
receivers on Sunday. He is explosive off the line of scrimmage and has excellent
hands. Already at 240+ pounds, Davis has the type of frame including his
shoulders to his hips to play in the 270+ pound range. One might normally think
he'd outgrow the tight end position because of his frame, but he's so athletic,
he can stay at end as long as he wants and be a matchup nightmare his entire
